In this seminar we read and discuss current research articles from different fields in bioinformatics. Each participant must present in few minutes two articles of their choice one week before their presentation. The group then votes which article will be discussed in detail in the subsequent week. To this end, the participant who proposed the article will take the lead of the discussion. All participants must read the paper and prepare themselves for the discussion.

The topics of presented papers should be related to bioinformatics, biology, or computer science.

In fact, this semester we will read the book Mathematics of Bioinformatics: Theory, Practice, and Applications by Matthew He and Sergey Petoukhov (pdf).
